Brothers Thursday Pages in Time Sketch


I love this photograph of my dad and his brother, Bob. Bob had a short life. He passed in WWII, while serving as a home guard in England. Unfortunately he contracted tuberculosis and wasn't able to be treated. From what I was told as a girl Uncle Bobby was quite a character.
For this LO I used the Pages in Time Thursday sketch. I also restored the photograph. The original is less than 3 by 5. I am pleased that it looks pretty good as a non-standard 7 inch square.
I used DCWV La Creme line for the patterned papers and Bazzill card stock for the background. The flowers are from Prima. The letters are from Basic Grey and Making Memories. Quite the mix up of manufacturers. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. May you always enjoy your family!
